Always, Sometimes, or Never? Resources for Math Class

After successfully using Always, Sometimes, or Never? to help my students gain a better conceptual understanding of the measures of central tendency (link to blog post), I began to wonder what other math topics I could use the Always, Sometimes, or Never? structure with.

speech bubbles featuring question marks with text: "always? sometimes? never?"

I spent part of an evening googling for resources.  I thought I should share my findings with you guys as well.  Have you used Always, Sometimes, or Never? to review other concepts?  Please leave a comment!

always sometimes or never questions over mean, median, mode, range.

A/S/N with systems of equations.... If two equations have the same slope, the system has no solution. If two equations have the same slope and y-intercept, the system has many solutions. If two equations have the same y-intercept, there is one solution.... etc.

I love always,sometimes, never! I used a resource I found on TES and changed it into a Desmos activity for arithmetic sequences here:

I have always, never, and sometimes with graphs of Quadratic Functions. It really makes students think beyond a choice of A, B, C and D

Thank you for all of these awesome links! I will definitely be bookmarking this page. I have an always, sometimes, never on quadrilaterals here:
